New York Life Long Term Disability Claims
Disability insurance can provide peace of mind in case of an accident or sickness that makes you incapable of working. New York Life’s portfolio of products includes Long Term Disability and Disability Income insurance for key business persons. Group disability products are also available. Although disability insurance benefits are meant to replace lost income, unfortunately, insurance companies do not always pay benefits as they should with legitimate claims.
New York Life Insurance Company has acquired Cigna Group Insurance, which is now known as New York Life Group Benefit Solutions. We are already receiving correspondence from New York Life Group Benefit Solutions on behalf of our clients, which states that we should not notice any changes other than the new company name, which will appear in place of “Cigna Group Insurance” moving forward. Contact information for existing claims, such as phone numbers and mycigna.com remain the same at this time (unless otherwise specified on a case by case basis).
